My 2 Little Gifts

So yet another Father's Day came and went without much fanfare except that I took my kids to an amusement park here in New Hampshire and was able to snap a picture of this asshole which I immediately put up on my Twitpic page:

There was also an amazing display of one woman's multiple back-boobs but I'm not posting it here because it's breakfast time.

Ah. New Hampshire.

But what made my day were the cards that my two kids gave me.

Especially this one, that my son made in school:

Sure he got my eye color wrong (they are an amazing shade of hypnotic green with long eyelashes and the ability to melt a woman's heart) but I can't fault him because that's a lot to write on one line for a 7 year-old.

Also, I'm FIVE-FOOT-THREE, son.


Jeez, son.

You make me sound short.

My dad is really good at: Breaking his bones.

True. Sadly. So true.

My dad is not so good at: Nothing.

Also? True.

I'm quite amazing, actually.

What I love most about my dad is: He's my dad.

Well, son..I have a secret for YOU:

It's what I love most about myself, too.

I love my kids and I love being their dad.

THAT I know I'm really good at.

I hope all you fathers out there had an amazing Father's Day, like I did.

Moog out.

From the mouths of babes.. it is a great card.

Happy Fathers Day.

John said...

That looks like the most magnificent father's day present possible (the card, not the douchebag sighting, though that's quite impressive).

I think you're actually 5'6 but you're just lying about your height for the ladies.

Kind of like how most women think an inch is actually about a 1/4" long.

A man lie, right?

Wowiee said...

Am I the only one who noticed before he wrote "nothing" he had something else written that he erased?

I can't wait until my kid says something nice like that about me and not "I want to see Daddy".

That is so cool. Congratulations Dad.


Jessica said...

Awww, such a sweet post from you. I love it. Sounds like you had a great Father's Day and that your kids couldn't love you more. Nothing better.

Just got a little teary. (And I thought you were referring to your butt when you mentioned your "softer side" -- obviously momentarily forgetting that you can bounce quarters off it.)

This is my fave Father's Day post ever!

I shudder to think about what horror-show school assignments my parents have saved. I know they're just lurking around in a filing cabinet somewhere.

I don't think it's New Hampshire, per se. I think it's amusement parks.

P.S. What a nice boy you have!

Knight said...

He probably got caught up on trying to spell hypnotic and said "Fuck it. His eyes are brown now."

LilPixi said...

So Eminem proves to us that those "beards" actually aren't drawn on with eyeliner. Huh, you learn something new everyday.

This post has all the best elements - Funny AND sweet.

And here I got all excited. I'm 5'1". I love when anyone (over age 11) is shorter than me.

So. Cal. Gal said...

I wish you were my dad. Mine kinda sucks. But that would be creepy because I'm assuming you're around my age.

Katherine said...

Heyyyy you took a picture of my brother and posted it!!!!

OK, so it isn't my brother. I just liked the awesome beard action... is that a beard? Or did he draw that thing in? I'm not sure...

What I found most interesting about this card was that it had a lot of police description information. I would be worried if someone asked my kid for hair color, eye color, height and weight.
Good thing it didn't ask about tattoos, then you'd know for sure it was the KGB.

Nicole Leigh Shaw said...

Happy belated Father's Day. Can you believe there's no card for that?

That last bit from kid who is not Cam cracked me up.

"My dad is really good at: Breaking his bones."


Caprice said...

Sorry, but I thought that said, "Breaking his boner." Glad you cleared that up for me. lol!
